AAR has further strengthened its portfolio of North American PBH customers with the addition of Allegiant Air. AAR will provide repair-by-the-hour integrated component services to Allegiant’s fleet of A320 aircraft. Allegiant currently operates 36 A320 aircraft and plans to expand to more than 100 aircraft during the term of the agreement.

Allegiant is a low-cost, leisure travel carrier connecting America’s favorite small cities to world-class destinations, with an aggressive growth plan and strong financial backing.

“As Allegiant grows our fleet and footprint throughout the U.S., we have selected a partner who has equally strong technical expertise to help us deliver world-class service. For this reason, we selected AAR as our prime supplier for the latest aircraft type in our fleet,” said Kurt Carpenter, Vice President for Maintenance and Engineering, Allegiant.

“Leisure travel carriers thrive by staying nimble and keeping planes in the air. AAR’s partnership with Allegiant will add efficiency to the supply chain and enhance Allegiant’s service to its passengers,” said John Holmes, Chief Operating Officer, Aviation Services, AAR. “We are proud to be chosen by Allegiant and consider it a testament to our industry-leading Integrated Supply Chain Solutions worldwide.”

Holmes continued, “AAR’s flexibility and willingness to understand a customer’s operational needs is what sets us apart. We are confident that this is a win-win relationship for both companies.”
